Stacking the Shelves #82: January 2015 Book Haul Part 2

Hello bookish friends!

Raise your hand if you got snow this week!!!
As predicted we got some snow, about 18 1/2 inches, which is kinda a big deal for us, we don't normally get more than 3 inches at a time, so people tend to panic about this, lol!
School was out for 2 days and we were able to enjoy some movies and books... it feels good to have not much to do and no where to be :)

Here are some books that I managed to get this week, no amount of snow can keep the books away!!!

(Please note, that the majority of my haul is Young Adult. Otherwise, books that aren't will be noted with either (A) for Adult, (NA) for New Adult, (MG) for Middle Grade, and (C) for Childrens books.)

  4. Wow...you got some amazing books in addition to all that snow. We were lucky and the storm veered east so we only got about 8in rather than the 2 ft as predicted!

  5. Awesome haul! I tried to read There Will Be Lies but it wasn't for me. Those who enjoyed seem to give it high ratings, though! Enjoy your books. My STS
